Match Day set for March 20

Fourth-year Medical College of Georgia students in Augusta and at the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership in Athens will participate in Match Day 2015 at noon on Friday, March 20.

Match Day for the Augusta campus will be held for the first time in the J. Harold Harrison, M.D. Education Commons, Room GB 1220, on the Health Sciences Campus. Athens’ Match Day ceremony will be held in George Hall on the University of Georgia Health Sciences Campus.

Match Day pairs the nation’s senior medical students with postgraduate programs providing specialty training. Each February, after interviews and visits to residency programs, medical students across the country rank hospitals where they’d like to complete residencies, and hospital residency programs rank the students. Rankings are submitted to the National Resident Matching Program in Washington, D.C. Pairings are announced simultaneously at U.S. medical schools. Graduates of osteopathic and foreign schools as well as U.S. graduates wanting to change their residency also participate.
